Micheal T Tate sr, ,
This was a shock to me, as this is 2016. The great second father I had. My godfather Bob, and godmother Aileen were always there for Ricky and I growing up during fantastic Tawas summers. I now can remember learning waterskiing, fishing, boating safety! But, little league with Rob and coach Bob. The best child hood ever! So sorry for lateness. There is no doubt Heaven is more alive than ever! Love and so missing all my family. Aloha to everyone.

I am very sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Elliott. He was a dear, kind man with a great sense of humor and a very large heart. I always enjoyed hearing him express his feelings and views of things. He was an old fashioned gentleman, displaying the qualities of a time gone by. My last conversation with him was at a company Christmas party a while back and we were sharing stories about his sons Kevin and Charlie. I told him how thankful I was to work with them, I am glad I shared that with him and I could tell he was very proud of them. My condolences to all of the Elliott family at this most difficult time. May God bring you comfort and peace.

During this season where gifts abound, my wish for you all is to be blessed with the gift of peace. My thoughts are with all of you.
Jerry Forro, East Tawas, MI USA
We will miss his great positive spirit. His "it doesn't get any better than this " and "Amen, brother". This fundamental affirmation of the value of others given by one who lived a truly valuable life. We will miss the sound of his voice. One thing that always brought a smile was him honking the horn as a greeting ...we will miss that
William Anderson, Charlotte, MI USA
My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Elliott family. I knew Both both as a fellow insurance agent active in MAIA and later as a staff member (now retired) of MAIA. He was always fun to work with and he always got the job done! The insurance industry in Michigan has lost a good champion!
David Mooney, Bradenton, FL USA
On behalf of my son Jonathan and myself, we are so sorry and deeply saddened to hear of Bob's passing. Our hearts and prayers are with Aileen and the rest of the Elliott family. He will surely be missed.
Paul LaPorte, Traverse City, MI USA
Aileen and the Elliott Family,
Some of my best memories from childhood centered around the Elliott family, especially Bob and Aileen. Still, today, I cannot hear the Notre Dame fight song without thinking of Bob. He'd sing it so loud we could hear it at our house, down the road. He was a great guy who left the world a better place.
May God continue to bless your family and may the wonderful cheerful memories of Bob be a source of comfort you your family during this difficult time of loss.

The family of Robert Elliott Jr.,
My thoughts and prayers are with you for the loss of Bob. I'm sure have no clue as to who I am but here's the connection. My father Preston S.Elliott would be Robert 's first cousin and his father would respectively be my dad's Uncle. My Grandfather Reginald S. Elliott was one of the sons of William and Anna(?) Elliott.
The Lords peace and love be with you always,

To the Elliott Family:
A sad day when I heard that Bob had passed away. Bob was a great guy and one very hard to say goodbye too.
Bob supported the American Legion Post here in East Tawas much before my time. He always was supportive of other veterans and supported the existence of the post at each and every occurrance where he could help and he did.
Good bye Bob and my sympathy is extended to those that you left behind. A huge void that could never be well filled.

Our prayers continue for you and Bob. He was my closest Notre Dame classmate. I loved the man. He gave me so much support this year. But that's the story of his giving life. At least we got to share our 60th ND Reunion together last June on the campus. Lots of laughs and a few "bubbles". God bless your great family and we'll see you in Florida soon.

Kevin and Mark, so sorry to hear of your father's passing. I am so glad to have met him during one of my visits to E. Tawas. What a genuinely nice man. While I only met him on that one occasion, he took the time to get to know me as a person. It is a testament to his success and yours. I'm sure he was very proud of his sons.
